Wal-Mart Yanks Naughty Halloween Costume
For as long as I can remember, All Hallow’s Eve has been an excuse to see who can wear the tiniest outfit and look the ‘hottest’.
Last year, at the ripe old age of **cough cough, somewhere in my mid to upper 20’s, I decided I was going to wear a sexy outfit. I was a leopard. I wore a printed leotard, some knee high black boots and fish nets. Doning a brunette wig, I felt empowered. Wal-Mart has recently pulled their ‘Naughty Leopard’ toddler Halloween Costume from store shelves. But kids, even teens wearing sexy costumes… just wrong in my opinion.
Check out the costume here. In response to the outrage, a Wal-Mart spokesperson says,
“It was never our intention to offend anyone and we apologize to any customers who may have been offended by the name of the costume..."
Clearly Wal-Mart’s advertising team chose the WRONG name for the outfit. But give me a break. The costume doesn’t look naughty. It looks like a darker version of a prima ballerina getup. Aren’t there bigger fish to fry in the world?
In fact, while I’m not quite sure of Miley Cyrus at this point… However, she had a good argument this week about how we look at things in our lil world.
America is just so weird in what they think is right and wrong. Like, I was watching Breaking Bad the other day, and they were cooking meth. I could literally cook meth because of that show. It’s a how-to. And then they bleeped out the word ‘fuck.’ And I’m like, really? They killed a guy, and disintegrated his body in acid, but you’re not allowed to say ‘f*@k’? It’s like when they bleeped ‘molly’ at the VMAs. Look what I’m doing up here right now, and you’re going to bleep out ‘molly’?
